Format: Paperback
I bought this book not necessarily to learn Scottish music but because it provides the best "quick start" to playing reels, jigs, and traditional music in DADGAD and Open G tuning (I keep my OM in DADGAD and my slope shouldered 12-fretter in Open G).
While browsing through a large selection of books on Celtic music in DADGAD at a sheet music shop, I happened upon this one by Rob MacKillop and immediately purchased it. This shop had about ten books in the "Celtic" section and this was by far the best one. The first section is on technique, second section is songs in Open G, while the third section is on DADGAD. Lot of songs to learn. Highly recommended!

This book was way too easy in my opinion. Mainly just playing single notes and no complexity. I have taught myself more about open G tuning and DADAD tuning than this book could every teach me. There are many songs out on the internet that are far better to learn. Sorry Scottish Guitar Book but you just don't do it for me.
